by supervisor avalos, san francisco was selected as the host city for the 34th america's cup and its related rigattas. included was a host and venue agreement which was an agreement that outlined the roles and responsibilities of the city, the america's cup organizing committee as a local nonprofit corporation formed to support the city's efforts in hosting the events, and the america's cup event authority which is the private entity that is basically the project sponsor in this case. i realize that those names and that alphabet soup sort of get confusing so i just want to emphasize the event authority is the entity, the organizing authority is the local nonprofit. in december, that agreement before i move on, that agreement obviously required us to pursue approval under the california environmental quality act before we could actually agree to proceed with the project. that was something that was very near and dear to everyone's hearts to make sure we do this in the san francisco way and really address all of the potential impacts. we had a very intensive effort over the course of 2011 to p
